Mental when i try to compile this script

Code:
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <unistd.h>

pid_t fork(void);

pid_t pid;

switch (pid = fork())
{
case -1:
    /* Here pid is -1, the fork failed */
    /* Some possible reasons are that you're */
    /* out of process slots or virtual memory */
    perror("The fork failed!");
    break;

case 0:
    /* pid of zero is the child */
    /* Here we're the child...what should we do? */
    /* ... */
    /* but after doing it, we should do something like: */
    _exit(0);

default:
    /* pid greater than zero is parent getting the child's pid */
    printf("Child's pid is %d\
",pid);
}
i get an error in line 8 about the switch command. any ideas?

Mental thats sounds like it could be it cause im putting in normal functions and its not reccognizing them for some reason. do you know how i would get the libraries for Dev C++ installed? thanks

amped It could be that you don't have the libraries that the program includes. Make sure you have them all before you try to compile it.
